About Aramex Australia
Aramex Australia, formerly known as Fastway Australia, is one of the most prominent logistics and courier services in the Oceanic region. They offer a broad and comprehensive suite of services, including but not limited to warehousing, transportation, and facility management. They have a vast network of about 29 regional franchises and more than 900 franchise partners all over the country.
Fastway Couriers was first founded in 1983 in New Zealand by Bill McGowan. The company eventually expanded operations to Australia in 1993, where it became a leading player in no time. Fast forward 20 years into the future, Fastway Australia was merged into the Aramex International Courier ecosystem, being re-branded as Aramex Australia. Its parent company, Aramex, is one of the largest Middle-Eastern logistics companies in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Today we list down the various services and delivery options offered by Aramex Australia. One of their signature services is the ‘Authority to Leave’ Delivery Service. This option entails the delivery official leaving the parcel in a designated ‘safe place.’ Safe place locations include letterboxes, with a concierge, or as per instructions by the courier. If no safe places are available at the moment, the delivery is taken to a local depot or a Parcel Connect agent.
There is also a standard delivery option that is common across almost all couriers. In this option, the delivery official is supposed to get a signature from the delivery receiver. If the receiver is unavailable, the parcel can be taken to a designated ‘safe place’ or a local drop-off station. The receiver will be able to access all delivery updates and information on the tracking page.
Non-safe place deliveries are also sometimes opted by the customers, such as the Signature Delivery Service, according to which the courier has to collect the receiver’s signature to complete the delivery, without which the parcel is sent back to a Parcel Connect agent, and the customer has to pick it up from there.
Other miscellaneous and value-added services include speedy and hassle-free returns, with the option of choosing from among the above three Return options, and the Collections Service, where the courier picks up your parcel from a supplier or vendor and performs the delivery.
Thus, with the bundled collection of no-frills delivery options as well as the more comprehensive services, Aramex Australia offers incredible variety when it comes to choosing how to send and receive your packages.
To make your delivery experience even smoother and more efficient for your customers, you might want to tie up with a logistics technology platform like ClickPost that handles all shipping API and intelligence requirements, ensuring that the end process remains quick and effortless for you.
